WordPress Plugin Vulnerability – Malware

Published on 21st January 2020

A security hole in the plugins InfiniteWP Client and WP Time Capsule led to the vulnerability of about 320’000 WordPress websites worldwide.

This vulnerability has been actively attacked in the last few days and caused several WordPress installations – also at Swizzonic – to be affected and thus infected with malware. On an online scanner like Sucuri you can check if you are infected and which files are affected.

If you are not affected by this, please check if your WordPress installation as well as your themes and plugins are up to date.
You should do this regularly to protect yourself in the future, so that you do not have a security hole that has already been closed.
